5. Soups, stews, and comfort foods, oh my!

Roasted tomato soup
  • 2 1/2 pounds fresh tomatoes ( fresh heirlooms, cherry, vine and plum tomatoes, all ok)
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 small yellow onions, sliced
  • Crispy bacon lardons for garnish, optional
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 quart chicken stock
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil leaves, optional
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream, optional

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Wash, core and cut the tomatoes into halves. Spread the tomatoes, garlic cloves and onions onto a baking tray.  Drizzle with 1/2 cup of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 20 to 30 minutes, or until caramelized.
Remove roasted tomatoes, garlic and onion from the oven and transfer to a large stock pot . Add 3/4 of the chicken stock, bay leaves, and butter. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until liquid has reduced. Add basil to the pot. Use a blender or food processor to puree the soup until smooth(careful, the hot soup can blow the top off your blender so hold the lid with a kitchen towel while blending). Return soup to low heat, add cream and adjust consistency with remaining chicken stock, if necessary. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Garnish in bowl with crispy bacon lardons and chopped basil. You could also use this as a creamy pasta sauce if desired! Make extra and freeze it, you will not regret having it on hand!

 Ok hot weather go away....I want to pull on my coat and boots and eat soup...
